As the solitary Hindi film premiering on Friday, "Main Atal Hoon" aimed to carve a niche for itself at the box office. However, the South Indian film industry, particularly with releases like Mahesh Babu's "Guntur" and Teja Sajja's "Hanuman," presented formidable competition. Unable to distinguish itself in this crowded space, the Hindi biopic struggled to garner the expected business. The film's momentum has dwindled within the initial four days, casting a shadow of uncertainty over its future performance.

Insights into "Main Atal Hoon"

Penned by Rishi Viramani and Ravi Jadhav, "Main Atal Hoon" made its theatrical debut on January 19. Produced by Bhansali Studios Limited and Legend Studios, with support from Vinod Bhansali, Sandip Singh, Sam Khan, and Kamalesh Bhansali, the movie serves as a biographical tribute to Atal Bihari Vajpayee, a recipient of India's highest civilian honor, Bharat Ratna.
